I really enjoyed the MBA Experience, met many great people (classmates, faculty, & staff) along the way.  I think the highlight of the MBA was the International Trip to Brazil.  It was an enlightening experience to interact with a new culture and visit international corporations as well as famous tourist sites.  This trip also tightly bonded our class and formed relationships that will last years.

The only thing I would have changed personally was possibly doing this program earlier in my career.
